Tre’on Hunt dies in fatal Annapolis shooting

Fatal Annapolis shooting death of Tre’on Hunt – Obituary

Tragedy struck on a Friday afternoon near the Boys and Girls Club in Annapolis as an 18-year-old fell victim to a fatal shooting, according to authorities.

The incident unfolded at approximately 2:10 p.m. within the confines of the 1900 block of Copeland Street.

Annapolis native, Tre’on Hunt, hailing from Glen Burnie, met his untimely demise at the location.

“I was fervently hoping that when they disclosed the identity of the deceased, it wouldn’t be him, but regrettably, it was,” lamented Janelle Turner, Tre’on’s aunt.

Police assured there was no prevailing threat to the broader public.

Annapolis Police Chief Edward Jackson stated, “My detectives are meticulously reviewing surveillance footage, conducting interviews with potential witnesses, and diligently canvassing the neighborhood. We’ve engaged crisis response teams and community outreach programs to instill a sense of serenity within the community.”

This marks the ninth fatality resulting from gun violence within Annapolis this year.

Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley expressed his sorrow, saying, “Annapolis has borne witness to yet another inexplicable act of violence. I implore, I beseech the young individuals entangled in such violence to cease, for you are inflicting devastation upon the very communities you call home. Consider your grandparents, your siblings, your parents; you are sowing trauma in the very fabric of your communities.”

This incident marks the second homicide within the Bywater Mutual Homes neighborhood since July, when a 16-year-old met a tragic end, and a 17-year-old sustained injuries in a shooting incident.

“I am a resident here, and I have children who must reside here securely,” Turner emphasized.

The disheartening recurrence of young lives meeting violent fates has deeply perturbed both residents and civic leaders.

Alderwoman Sheila Finley underscored the urgent need for collective action to alter this ominous trend.

“A young man recently disclosed that he possesses information regarding the previous homicide,” Finley revealed. “We implore individuals to step forward and assist us. Our plea is directed at residents, families, relatives, and the entire community at large—join us in persuading the youth that we desire their continued existence.”

It is noteworthy that this shooting transpired in proximity to a school bus stop, leading to temporary rerouting of student drop-offs during the police investigation.

Authorities are urging anyone with pertinent information about this incident to contact the police at 410-260-3439 or Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7LOCKUP.
